I know for sure Iíve met people and for no reason Iíve taken a dislike, then after a bit, Iíve thought I was mistaken in prejudging them, only to have them behave in such a way later on that made me think my gut feelings were right.

However, I distrust mediums totally. Most people are drawn to them because of a bereavement or an emotional crisis so they are already mentally vulnerable. The law of statistics means that these mediums will get something right occasionally but because of my cynicism, a work colleague persuaded me to attend a spiritualist church. Never seen such conning and deception going on. Average age of the congration was 70+ so by saying Iíve got a message from an Albert, Hilda, Doris, George etc it will strike a chord with someone. The only positive thing I guess it did do was give some of the old people comfort that Albert, Hilda, Doris or George were happy where they are and they forgive the living for whatever happened!

i was particularly close to my late father and I know, if there was anyway he could contact me from wherever he went, he would speak to me, not through some third party.
I can concur with your first paragraph. This instinct, has, generally served me well over the years.

There again, I've never made any secret of the fact I believe only the body dies, the spirit and soul remain . Far too many encounters with what is termed, and invariably dismissed by those who prefer to think science as we know it can provide all the answers, the paranormal

The above being totally separate from those who seem to have had an amazing number of bizarre coincidences in their life.

My partner has visited mediums and found them to be more than accurate when describing events in her life.....without any prior knowledge or attempts to elicit information.
